Nigeria LNG road delivery scheme to provide cheaper fuel

Published by

Reuters are reporting that Nigeria has launched a scheme to transport LNG to regions not linked by pipeline, supplying power plants and industry with cheaper, cleaner fuel.

Nigeria lacks refining capacity, so most crude is exported and the West African nation imports gasoline and other refined products. A creaking power network also means companies often rely on expensive diesel generators.

The government has said it wants to use more of its gas.

Under the new plan, the state oil firm, the Nigerian unit of France’s Total and Gas Aggregation Company Nigeria Ltd (GACN) would deliver gas to a small LNG plant run by Nigeria’s Greenville LNG.

Greenville would deliver the gas to industries and companies around the nation using trucks which would themselves be powered by LNG.

“Greenville will transport products with specialised LNG trucks, which have the capacity to travel about 1000 km on LNG before refuelling,” GACN Managing Director Morgan Okwoche said.
